Joe Girardi wasn’t fully ready to commit to it, but there’s a chance Mariano Rivera will see his first game action Wednesday since undergoing knee surgery early last season. “I think the next thing might be a game. Could be (Wednesday),” Girardi said of the Yanks’ exhibition game against Robinson Cano and the Dominican Republic team before the World Baseball Classic. “It probably won’t be Thursday (in Jupiter), so it might be (Wednesday). There’s a chance. . . . With Mo, we go day by day. I’ll talk to him and see what he thinks.” Rivera hasn’t pitched in a game since April 30 of last season, three days before he suffered a torn ACL in his right knee shagging flies during batting practice in Kansas City.
